This morning Robb highlighted a few things out of our devotional book and laid it out on the table for me to read when i woke up.
As always i was amazed by the way God always knows exactly what i need for that day.
"I weep with grief; encourage me by your word. Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your law. I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your law." ~Psalm 119:28-30
Lies i tell myself: I will never be able to be happy again. My life is over. God must not love me. He must be punishing me. I have failed.
Emotions lie to us and people mislead us but God's word speaks the truth which we are so desperate for.
Do I still listen to those lies? Yes, all the time (see post below)
But i believe in the truths and pray for my eyes to be opened to the truths found in the Word so they can wipe away my thoughts and feelings of doubt and discouragement.
I have had a hard time lately praying, and doing devotions, its just been so hard. But days like today make me realize how important it is to do that. Even in the midst of my hardships God knows how to comfort me. I just have to go and find it.
